Whether you enjoy taking selfies, or you're going to a special event where you know there's going to be lots of Instagramming, it doesn't hurt to know a few beauty tricks to look more photogenic in today's snap-and-share society. Here's what you can do to get ready for your next close-up:
Your skin is the first thing people notice in a picture, so ensure a flawless look by wearing foundation (avoid formulas that are too dewy, which can look greasy in photos) and camouflaging undereye circles and blotchy skin with a concealer. Set with a dust of face powder on your T-zone. Try Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder, which has earned raves for its finely-milled texture that softens imperfections and gives skin a "Photoshopped look".
It's one of the most underrated look-great-in-photos tricks. Just filling in your arches with a pencil or powder will open up your eyes and frame your face. For the most natural look, pick a color that's one shade lighter than your brows.
To make your features pop in photos, use a matte bronzer to add dimension. With a blush brush, sweep the formula under your cheekbones and along the temples and jawline to give your face a sculpted look.
Ensure your lips are hydrated before taking a picture, because you don't want your end result to look dry and flaky. Moisturized kissers always look more youthful, so keep a tinted lip balm, gloss or moisturizing lipstick on hand and slick it on for that luscious look.
When you're taking a selfie, keep your camera slightly elevated around forehead level and tilt it downward -- this will give you the best angle. Avoid taking shots from below eye level, which is the least flattering.
Instead of facing the camera straight on, try this super-flattering pose: Turn your body slightly to one side with one foot behind the other. This gives your body a more relaxed shape plus you'll instantly look slimmer in photos.
Looks can be deceiving.
This is why it is important to see things from different angle
Everybody (specially girls) wish to looks beautiful in every snaps. Girls are seems very conscious about this when camera comes in front of face
However, this is a problem faced by many people, but is quite easy to remedy. Being photogenic is not an inborn talent, but an acquired skill that can be learned through practice.Firstly would tell you to focus on your face. Keep your skin clean and smooth by washing, toning and moisturizing your face before having your photo taken. It would be better if you doing this should be a daily morning/evening ritual but is especially important before a photo shoot.Secondly focus on what makes you unique, most of the times we get concerned about something wrong with our face; our freckles, the gap in your teeth, how squinty your eyes get when you smile. Instead of trying to hide those things, embrace them! You will look much more photogenic in your photos that way. Also do not look the camera straight on, turn your face slightly to the side to create natural highlights and shadows and slim the shape of your face. While adjusting angle of your face just tilt your head slightly down and to the side for the most photogenic of looks.
Make up does wonders.
